    Pros

    McKesson has good benefits and time off policies.

    Cons

    Leadership is sneaky so watch out. Lots of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees. Stand by them and do the right thing by them. Make your leaders in the trenches do what they said they were going to do. They have made promises to me that they didn't keep but used that as the reason for me to no longer be there. I am good employee and it's their loss.

    Pros

    Flexible with work at home schedules. Lots of employee longevity and good benefits. Depth of knowledge with many Mangers who have worked their way up in the company makes for supportive Management who 'gets it'.

    Cons

    Departments function as silos and communication is impacted. Because many people have been with the company for a long time, difficult to find documentatoin for processes that cross departments - lots of knowledge in peoples heads.

    Pros

    Not a very aggressive place. You can do well without much effort. Decisions are SLOWWWWWW to be made, assuming they ever are made.

    Cons

    The HQ building needs to be demolished. Pay does not match performance. It's based more on experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on Keepin on.

    Pros

    No politics, decent work life balance, good people, very solid senior management team. Pay is competitive and benefits are generous.

    Cons

    Cautious to make changes, PSS merger is going to be tough, pretty boring... those under 30 won't find it very fun. The office in Richmond is ugly and if you want nice furniture and pretty art, work elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions faster and take a few risks.
